You can set fix IP address for ethernet interface "eth0" at:

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

You will have one config file per ethernet interface

The content looks like the following for FIX ip address:

DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=static
BROADCAST=192.168.6.255
IPADDR=192.168.6.204
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
NETWORK=192.168.6.0
ONBOOT=yes

Hope this help.

steps
1) go to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
2) cp ifcfg-eth0 ifcfg-etho.bak ( just backup the file in case if you mess up anything)
3) vi ifcfg-eth0
    change the  BOOTPROTO= static      
------------------------------------------------------------                      
 DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=static
HWADDR=04:60:9F:79:2E:6C
IPADDR=xxx.xxx.xx.xx                                              An example of how the file looks like
NETMASK=255.255.252.0
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=Ethernet
----------------------------------------------------------------
Also give the ipaddr in case if you want to change it

Guys - the Q was about debian !
Mine config looks this way
# /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8)
# The loopback interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
# The first network card - this entry was created during the Debian installation
# (network, broadcast and gateway are optional)
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.167.1
netmask 255.255.255.0
network 192.168.167.0
broadcast 192.168.167.255
gateway 192.168.167.254

Debian keeps this information in the /etc/network/interfaces

Easy way to edit is aptitude joe

then joe /etc/network/interfaces

Modify the file, do a ctl-k-x

Here is a link to a great Debian Help site

http://www.debianhelp.co.uk/network.htm

cheers

You will also want to run this command:

/etc/init.d/networking restart

This will cause the changes to take effect
